: Everyman's Club

A Programme to celebrate the Coming of Age of Toc H
The Programme will include a message from His MAJESTY THE KING
Spoken by H.R.H. the DUKE OF KENT, K.G., and specially recorded at the ceremony of the Lighting of the Lamps of Maintenance at the Crystal Palace on Saturday, June 27.
In July, 1915, a young British Officer, Gilbert Talbot, was killed in action in Flanders, and in his memory a rest-house for all ranks serving in the Ypres Salient was opened in December at Poperinghe; it was called Talbot House, and it became known as Toc H, because that was the way the signallers would pronounce the initials of Talbot House... So began a fellowship that was to spread all over the world.
At the famous church of All Hallows by the Tower, of which Tubby Clayton, padre in charge of Toc H in 1915, is vicar, in a casket in the Lady Chapel reposes the first Lamp of Maintenance that was given in 1922 by King Edward VIII, then Prince of Wales. Lighted by him fourteen years ago, it has never gone out.
Last night the twenty-first anniversary of Toc H was celebrated at the Crystal Palace, and today, by means of voices and records, listeners are to hear how this great fellowship started in the Salient where no man's life was safe ; what it stands for and what it is doing ; and how it has grown beyond the imagination of its founders. Listeners will hear the King's message that was given by the Duke of Kent last night, and the programme will end with the Ceremony of the Lamp.

: The Drama Today-5

Through the Microphone VAL GIELGUD
Of his own early days as a professional nctor, Val Gie 'gud talks with amusement, for he made his professional debut at the Royalty Theatre in The Cherry Orchard, understudying his brother John, four years younger than himself. At Oxford he was not connected with the O.U.D.S., but he returned there to stage-manage for Fagan in the Oxford Repertory Theatre and played a whole round of parts.
His first play Self was produced by a society at the Court Theatre in 1926. Other plays followed ; his Chinese White is a standing dish with repertory companies.
In 1928 he joined the BBC-incidentally, he first worked on the staff of The RADIO TIMES. The following year he was promoted to Productions Director and he became Drama Director when Variety and Drama became separate departments. Probably the greatest tribute to him as a producer was paid last year by Ronald Squire who engaged him to produce Tread Softly at Daly's Theatre
Val Gieigud 's book ' How to write
Broadcast Plays' with three examples of his own plays, Exiles, Red Tabs and Friday Morning is as well known as ' Death at Broadcasting House,' in which he collaborated with Holt Marvell.
This evening he is to talk on radio drama, believing firmly that radio should be linked up with the stage, and that first-rate stage actors and the adapting of first-rate stage plays are an essential part of broadcasting.

: THE WEEK'S GOOD CAUSE

An appeal on behalf of THE CHRISTIAN COLLEGES OF INDIA, by the Most Hon. the Marquess of LOTHIAN, C.H.
This evening the Marquess of Lothian, who was Chairman of the Indian Franchise Commission, is to appeal on behalf of the Christian Colleges of India, which are open not only to Christians but to all communities-Hindu, Muslim, and Sikh.
Apart from the colleges of India that are maintained by Government and private enterprise there are nearly forty carried on by missionary bodies, and twenty-six of these are maintained by British societies. The whole working of these colleges was investigated five years ago by a commission headed by the Master of Balliol, and the appeal this evening is one of the results.
Its aim is to put on their feet five colleges that are essential and are in special need, and to launch plans for the colleges as a whole. The appeal has the support of the Viceroy of India and the last two Viceroys, and of the present and late Secretary of State. The sum asked for is £100,000.
Contributions will be gratefully acknowledged, and should be addressed to [address removed]

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
